On June 12, 2020, the Honorable Vince Ryan, County Attorney of Harris County requested an opinion from the Texas Attorney General regarding facial covering mandates in courtrooms, courthouses and other county buildings during the COVID-19 disaster.  Specifically, Ryan asked what remedies are available to a County Judge to protect the health and safety of county employees, customers, and the public when a person declines to wear a face covering in a County-owned or controlled building.
